Hello and welcome back to another blog post! Today, I’ll be showing you how to crochet a cube. Amigurumi is traditionally done to look more circular in shape, but sometimes it’s fun to work outside of the box. The unique thing about crochet and amigurumi is that there are all kinds of shapes and patterns, and so much you can do with this craft. So, let’s get started. You can find the cube pattern below.
This pattern is worked in continuous rounds like classic amigurumi. I recommend using a stitch marker to mark the beginning or end of each round.
You can use any type of yarn or size hook for this project. I used worsted weight yarn with a 3.5 mm crochet hook. You will also need stuffing, a yarn needle, and scissors.
st (sts) – stitch (stitches)
mc – magic circle (ring)
sc – single crochet
sc 3 tog – single crochet 3 together
blo – back loop
 – repeat
() – The total number of stitches at the end of end round
Rnd – round
Rnd 1: 4 sc in mc (4)
Rnd 2: sc 3 in every st (12)
Rnd 3: sc 1, [sc 3 in the next st, sc 2], sc 1 (20)
Rnd 4: sc 2, [sc 3 in the next st, sc 4], sc 2 (28)
Rnd 5: sc 3, [sc 3 in the next st, sc 6], sc 3 (36)
Rnd 6: sc 4, [sc 3 in the next st, sc 8], sc 4 (44)
For the cube pictured below, I stopped increasing here. You can make your cube as big or small as you want by adjusting how many increasing rounds you crochet.
Rnd 7: Work in the blo, sc in every st (44)
Rnd 8-15: sc in every st (44)
Depending on how many increasing rounds you did, you will have to adjust how many rounds you work even.
Rnd 16: sc in the next 2 sts (44)
Rnd 17: Work in the blo, sc 4, [sc 3 tog, sc 8], sc 4 (36)
Rnd 18: sc 3, [sc 3 tog, sc 6], sc 3 (28)
Rnd 19: sc 2, [sc 3 tog, sc 4], sc 2 (20)
Rnd 20: sc 1, [sc 3 tog, sc 2], sc 1 (12)
Rnd 21: sc 3 tog x 4 (4)
Fasten off and use the yarn tail to close the hole. If you do not know how close the remaining hole is, check out my blog post about it here. As with the other steps, the amount of decreasing rounds you do will depend on how many increasing rounds you do.
